TBT Member Spotlight: Julie Tollen
TBT member Julie Tollen’s got a skill or two: She’s a first violinist and Operations Manager for the Tampa Bay Symphony, and at alternate times plays her violin with a string quartet and somewhat impromptu “musical groups” around Tampa. “I call myself ‘semi-professional,” Julie remarks. When she’s not among the string players, she’s a 3rd degree Black Belt in the martial art known as Aikido. Julie manages the facility Aikido Chuseikan of Tampa Bay, founded by her husband and his close friend in 2013, and runs the youth program for developing martial artists in the Ybor City section in Tampa.
But it doesn’t stop there. After living for five years on Japan’s southern island, Kyushu, teaching English as a second language, Julie now speaks Japanese, is a certified personal training, and is a graduate of the “alternative” Naropa University in Boulder, CO. (She holds a degree in Religious Studies with a decidedly “Eastern” focus–think Buddhism combined with Western poetics and psychology). (Continue reading Spotlight on Julie)

Tampa Bay Time Bank – The Basics
Tampa Bay Time Bank – a community skills exchange
Tampa Bay Time Bank is a community skills exchange, also known as a “time bank.” Time banking is a way to exchange services as a complement to the cash economy. In Tampa Bay Time Bank we trade skills gained from work, education, life experience, hobbies, and volunteering, while making friends and building community. Time banking is egalitarian. All activities are valued, and all activities are valued equally. One hour equals one hour. Each hour of work is equal to every other, regardless of the activity. We earn credit by doing something for another member, then we can use the credit by having any other member do something for us. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions (Member Handbook) to learn more about how Tampa Bay Time Bank works.
Everyone can participate in the time bank
Everyone is welcome and anyone willing to maintain a high level of trust is invited to join the community. Everyone has something to offer and everyone has needs. By participating, each member contributes to creating a resilient and sustainable community. Tampa Bay Time has members throughout the Tampa Bay area. For more information, for help with your application or using the online system, or if you want to get more involved with the time bank, please contact a email@example.com.
